Compared to a typical computer running in Microsoft Windows, these are the advantages of a Chromebook:
- Ultra fast boot time. Boots in seconds.
- Strong security. Need not worry about viruses and malwares.
- Automatic update for free. Need not purchase and install updates manually.
- Maintenance free. No need to spend hours to install patches.
- Cloud storage. Store all your data online.
- Free apps from Chrome Web Stores. No more buying and installing softwares.
Chromebook is designed for the web. However, in rare cases when there is no Internet connection, we are still able to work with the offline app.
Chromebooks are available on sale in 8 countries now, starting from USD 199 (~ RM 600). The price is really affordable as a typical netbook already costs RM 900. This is definitely a computer for everyone.
